Wine deal of the week

Wine

Oregon is justly renowned for its pinot noir, but the white wines are pretty doggone swell, too. The 2011 Evesham Wood Blanc de Puits Sec ($16) drinks well above its price point, the citrus and green apple fruit melding deftly with spot-on acidity. That’s if you get past the alluring aromatics on this blend of pinot gris (85 percent) and gewürztraminer (15 percent) from an organic vineyard. At 12.5 percent alcohol, it’s a wonderful al fresco sipper, but also should play well with spicy foods or at a fish fry. Available at Cork Dork, Tournament and Dennis Brothers.
